Semantic Search

The /v1/search/semantic endpoint (API) takes a text query, typically entered by your end user, and semantic results are returned with their IDs and relevance score. The text query can be short keywords, longer natural language, or anything in between.

Standard Search Options apply

Filtering, pagination, accuracy etc all apply to this endpoint

The example JSON below uses this endpoint to tell the Vantage platform what to search and return. The text field is your search query. It is passed to the LLM that you configured for the specified collection. This creates an embedding that the Vantage platform uses in its semantic similarity search algorithm. The rest of the JSON is covered in the Search Options section below.

{
  "text": "Looking for great summer brunch outfit for Montauk!",
